Good morning and welcome to our new challenge! We've got a nice easy theme for you again this week:
Anything Goes
We don't like to make it too easy for the DT though so we've challenged them to create projects with a theme of 'Silver Lining' to inspire you. You don't have to use PanPastels to enter but of course we love it when you do.

Before we check out the inspiration from our talented teamies its time to announce the winner and Top 3 from challenge 52. Our winner, as chosen by is

Well done ladies, your projects were stunning, don't forget to grab your Top 3 blinkie from the sidebar

Now lets check out the projects from our DT using PanPastels, Maimeri Mediums and masks!!

Claire C I've used Paynes Grey  and Pewter PanPastels to create a background for this card. I mixed glitter with Maimeri Glassy gel and swooshed it here and there and once it was dry added PanPastels. The image is coloured with PanPastels and Graph'It markers with  little of the Silver Glitter Shake pen too

Terry had fun working on a agenda for 2014. The front's background and the back of the project has been worked on with the Roses Stencil, with Gesso, Modelling Past, lots of Silver Metallic PanPastels and crackle. The Roses pop out more because of the Modelling Paste and Silver Metallic PanPastels. For decoration I placed a few butterflies

Tracy - Hi everyone, today I thought I would create a little Whimsical Wood Art to share with you all. I used the following Pan Pastels and Maimeri Mediums to create my whimsical wood art - Pewter and Silver Metallic Pan Pastels, Phthalo Blue Shade, Burnt Sienna Shade, Yellow Ochre, Titanium White, Neutral Grey Shade Pan Pastels, Maimeri Gesso and Iridescent Paste. 
I had so much joy mixing the pans with water and the Maimeri Mediums, applying them with a brush and my fingers to colour in this stamped image.
